Curbing Malaria

My name is Anne, I come from Mutende a community that is most affected with prevalence sickness like malaria. This is because of mosquitoes found in the area. Most our children are most affected , both pregnant mothers and new born babies and even those those that are still growing. At least there cases reported every month concerning child mortality. I cant forget the day i lost my 3year child, only to be told by the doctors it's malaria. I thank God because of a group of social workers from save water project who brought free net's to be distributed to the mothers having children under 5 years and below, cases of malaria is now a forgone story.Cut's Routine practice even for mature ones's to use nets.
